What to begin with?!

A friend at work thinks it is time to slow down and to work less and get a hobby, like photography. Two nights a week is her new work schedule. So plenty of time to do something new!

She has dogs, and grandchildren, and a husband!

So kids, people, and animals, I guess, are the main subjects, to begin with.

She used to own a Canon, in the days of film, so what is a good beginner's camera in the Canon camp?! And what lenses (a camera kit would naturally cheaper), but anything goes, I guess.

I myself is entrenched in the Nikon camp, and used to be an avid Pentax user;-)!

My favorite lenses are fast (compact) primes, and low weight, sharp, telephoto zooms.

But "I know nothin'" when it comes to Canon (well, I do have some Canon stuff, but not lenses and cameras).

Any suggestions?
